Among parents, whites and Hispanics are more likely than blacks to say they worry about their teen being cyberbullied. Hispanic parents also are more inclined than black parents to say they worry about their child exchanging explicit images.

More than 395,000 students in ninth through 12th grade took the survey for the 2017-2018 school year. Nearly 53,000 said they'd experienced bullying because of their race, ethnicity or national origin in the past 12 months; about 24,000 students left the question blank. Black students were most likely to experience this type of bias-related bullying, according to the analysis, with more than 1 in 5 reporting that it happened to them. Nearly 70% of those students said it happened more than once, also more than any other racial or ethnic group.

Sexual minority youth were significantly more likely to report both types of bullying than their heterosexual peers, whereas black and Latinx students were significantly less likely to report both types. White students who identified as gay/lesbian or bisexual were more likely to report both types of bullying than white, heterosexual youth. Very few changes were observed in electronic or school bullying victimization from 2015 to 2017, although there was a statistically significant decrease in school bullying among white, heterosexual youth.

Overall, of students ages 12–18, the percentage of students of Two or more races (37 percent) who reported being bullied was higher than the corresponding percentages for White students (25 percent) and Black students (22 percent), which were in turn higher than the percentage of Asian students (13 percent) who reported being bullied. In addition, higher percentages of students of Two or more races and White students than of Hispanic students (18 percent) reported being bullied at school during the school year.

Turning to bullying, Farris (2006) finds that black students are more likely to be bullies than are white students while white students are more likely than black students to be the victims of bullying. Latino students are both more likely than black students to be engage in, and be a victim of, bullying. [...] With respect to interracial bullying, Farris finds that black on white bullying is 64% more common than is White on Black bullying.
